He also spoke of how happy he was that Trump had agreed to meeting with Kim, which no USA president has done before.

"Just come out to the world healthy with a big cry", Im Jong-seok wrote, apparently wishing for a successful outcome from the meeting between Trump and Kim.

"We'll meet again. We will meet many times". "We can't go too terribly wrong without doing these exercises without having some impact".
